Bug ID: 435643
Summary: akonadi mail dispatcher agent fails to store the
password for smtp auth permanently
Assignee: kdepim-bugs at kde.org
Reporter: Mathias.Homann at opensuse.org
Target Milestone: ---
my mailaccounts all need smtp auth - kmail fails to remember the password, and
then takes several minutes to time out and retry
STEPS TO REPRODUCE
1. have a mail account that requires smtp auth
2. configure kmail accordingly
3. try to send mail
kmail asks for the smtp password, then sits there for minutes doing nothing.
Finally a pop up appears, saying "the remote has closed the connection", after
that sending mail works fine until the next reboot.
I would expect the checkbox "store password" to ... make kmail store the
password. Also, I'd expect kmail to immediately retry the sending process, not
after a timeout of several minutes.

- other email clients work fine with my server... thunderbird on windows or
linux, android phones, k9mail on android, iphones, you name it, it works. Just
kmail collapses on me.
severity: grave because a mail client that can't send mail reliably is DEAD IN
